Notes 
 Gurriel has been a streaky player so far in his career, but he seems to be in Toronto's long-term plans. The positional flexibility helps, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I'm the low guy on Edman, and that's fine. I just am not sold on him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After starting the season slow, Toronto sent Gurriel back to the minors but once he was called back up, he was one of the best hitters in baseball with a nearly 50-homer pace. That won't keep up, but 35 with a strong batting average is entirely possible.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Edman had a tidy little rookie season for the Cardinals, as he batted over .300 and put up 11 home runs and 15 steals in 92 games. He looks destined for a super-utility role in 2020, but that should still mean plenty of playing time. With batting average and steals at a premium, Edman is a solid target as you get into the double-digit rounds.
